Not Just 3D Goggles

Not Just 3D Goggles

Do these look familiar to you? These goggles? These… 3D goggles? To my, they look like the “Awesome” 3D Environment games they used to have at the state fair. It was sooo 3D! Almost like real life! These are not a game. They are heavy, so do not touch them. This is REAL real life. These are a medical instrument for elderly people. The “ForeSeeHome” by designer Eitan Shariff of I2D: not to be having fun with.

Cooking Is All About The Flavors

Cooking Is All About The Flavors

Sous-vide is a method of cooking that retains the strong flavors of the ingredients by heating them for an extended period of time at relatively low temperatures. The flip side is that it needs to be performed under carefully controlled conditions to avoid botulism poisoning. Here is a look at a sophisticated iteration of this cooker that promises to maintain the intense flavors and cook some very tender meat.

Project M

Project M

The long awaited Stile Bertone Mantide Project M supercar made its debut yesterday at the Shanghai Autoshow. The showstopper designed by famed Pininfarina designer Jason Castriota is a sleek, uber futuristic outlook on bespoke automotive engineering. Underneath the hood lies a Corvette ZR1 which if you have ever heard before, befittingly goes well with the aggressive sculpted front and rear.

Are You Up For Some Molecular Cooking?

Are You Up For Some Molecular Cooking?

I know that Molecular gastronomy is a scientific discipline involving the study of physical and chemical processes that occur in cooking, but this is the first time I’m coming across a device that actually allows you to do some Molecular Cooking! Consisting of a whip syphon, vaporizer and blow torch the “Moleculars” is something that would make an adventurous cook pretty happy in the kitchen. Experimentation would be the name of the game.

Shrieking Ball Wakes You Pronto

Shrieking Ball Wakes You Pronto

Clank, Smack, Stand or Glow…we resort to so many new tricks to catch those extra Zzzz, its ridiculous! It’s time to add to the collection an alarm that will WAKE YOU instead of adding to the mayhem. This ballsy (pun intended) gutsy alarm clock expects you to lift the globe off the base when the shrieking starts only to be put down precisely in its cradle, to stop the commotion. Dare you snooze! Wake, stimulate, whatever…just make sure DiGi sits pretty next to Chumby.

No One Person Safe from Bath Mines

No One Person Safe from Bath Mines

Actually it’s called the “Bath Bomb,” but any naval commando super sailor knows that this is a mine. Any any naval commando super sailor also knows that one needs dolphins to check for mines. Note: Bath Bomb is “dolphins not included.” This design was designed by none other than Mukomelov Aleksandr. An explosive designer is he. Russian. Tough. That’s what you’ve gotta be to pop one of these into your bathtub. Believe that.

Amuen Encourages Our Ilk To Inspire And Be Inspired!

Fellow YDers, if you are looking for a new place to hang out on the net then I must recommend the swanky Amuen site. Designed by our friends at RKS Design, this is the spot to hobnob with fellow “creative souls – painters, musicians, sculptors, photographers, writers, enthusiasts, and everyone in between.” The social site is even running an intro contest where you can snap up a Mac Book with a custom skin designed by Carson Hill or a 16GB iPod Touch.

Dirty Kitchen Towels Make Me Sad

Dirty Kitchen Towels Make Me Sad

Kitchen dish towels are basically vacation spots for the propagation of bacteria. Put it under a microscope and I’m sure you’d see a whole Club Med resort. Gross! We don’t wash our kitchen towels nearly as often as we should. WIPE-C DISHCLOZ is a mini washer designed just for kitchen towels. Drop it in the very cool iris opening top and voila! Clean kitchen towels. Not sure if it uses water and detergent but I’m already sold on the idea.

Zip Up Tangles

Zip Up Tangles

Your trouser fly just influenced my friend Ji. Quit smirking, coz his YI earphones concept will take care of a lot of wire-tangle-hassles in the future, if it ever gets to production. Simple thought process and application! If pants can have a zipper to hold in the essentials then why the idea can’t be used on earphones to manage them when not in use! Zip then open when you want to use them; zip them shut when you want to store them.

Some Space For Tweety

Some Space For Tweety

I really don’t like the idea of keeping birds for pets as I feel it curbs their freedom to soar the skies. What I do like is the idea of installing birdfeeders instead, this way you can enjoy the scene from afar when an unassuming robin partakes the grains you have left for it. OKKO is as versatile as a birdfeeder can get coz it can either be hung from the ceiling in a balcony (if you have such luxury) or be placed on a post in the garden.

Mega Block Motorcyclin' on Down the Line

Mega Block Motorcyclin’ on Down the Line

Lines. Lines and Lines and lines. With the front face looking like a Lego, or a mega-blok. It’s the “2015 Honda CB 750″ by Igor Chak. The engine is powered by a four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine. POW! A six-speed dual-clutch transmission with electronic lurch and traction control. Electronic tuning by the onboard computer. I’ve decided to call it “Frank”. Hello David, Frank, aka CB750, is here to take you over the canyon top.

Get Touchy Feely With Time

Get Touchy Feely With Time

Although the blind will not be able to appreciate the simplistic style of Feel the Time, the practical approach of the design will be well received. The watch face features rotating discs with a tangible nub on each. Feeling the nub helps the blind read the time. Three−dimensional rings distinguish the discs from each other and a flexible membrane protects the face of the watch. A break at the 12’O Clock position acts as the guide for feeling the time accurately. Sight or no sight, the watch will look neat on any wrist.
